Ease of Use
Assembling the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor is an easy, quick process. Each part slots easily into place. Most of the parts are made of plastic, but it’s still durable enough despite this. The design is user-friendly with an Off/On button being the only button on the unit.
Clean-up is rather easy especially if you place a plastic bag inside the pulp container. It’s advisable to clean-up straight after juicing to make it easier. The only awkward thing to clean is the strainer basket, but a cleaning brush is included which is effective for cleaning this with some scrubbing.
The motor is the driving force behind a juicer so it’s important to have a powerful motor. The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor is powered by an 800-watt motor which handles hard vegetables such as carrots and beets, with ease.
The only types of produce which aren’t suitable for use with this juicer are leafy vegetables and wheat grass. For juicing these produce you’d be wise to invest in a masticating juicer instead.
The juicer is relatively quiet in operation despite its powerful motor, although how noisy one finds it depends on their personal opinion.
3″ Feed Tube
The 3″ feed tube has a rounded shape and is generously sized, allowing you to fit in certain whole produce into the feed chute without cutting them up first, making juicing that much less time consuming. Larger produce do need cutting up though to fit into the chute.
Pros and Cons
Being a centrifugal juicer means its fast so you can juice produce within a matter of seconds.
It’s cheap, making it ideal for those on a budget or those looking for a starter juicer.
It comes with an excellent recipe book to get you on your way.
It has a rather small footprint so it will not take up much space on your kitchen counter.
It doesn’t juice leafy vegetables or wheat grass well. For this purpose we recommend a masticating juicer such as the Omega 8004.
There is only 1 speed setting, so you can’t vary the speed for softer and harder produce.
The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor is a fantastic choice for the budgeted buyer or for those looking for their first juicer to see if juicing is something they wish to pursue. It lacks the stunning sleek looks of some competitor juicers, but this is a juicer designed with efficiency in mind at an affordable price.
It does a good job of extracting lots of juice although the pulp isn’t completely dry as is the case with any other centrifugal juicers.
